Great idea! One more thing though, is it possible for an enemy unit to find a spy/assassin? Here's an example:

Suppose you have an assassin on the enemy team. If he is within range of his target (eg enemy commander) and he kills him, does he get caught? An enemy unit wouldn't expect someone on their own team to kill their commander, so there's no guarantee that he would be caught.

My own thoughts on this matter are that you'd roll a dice to decide if he gets caught, depending on the manner he killed him in. If he knifed him, it's pretty likely that he'll be caught, whereas if he fragged him, it's much harder to see who threw the grenade. Suggestions, anyone?

Also, if the spy isn't caught instantly, what would the enemy response be? I was thinking maybe the enemy could lock down the area, and the spy has three turns to try and leave the complex before he's automatically caught. What are your thoughts on this matter?

I would say that the spy is revealed the second he attempts to attack, period, regardless of how he attacks.

a hidden sniper is much more usefull for assasinations than spys since you can set the unit up pre-game so your opponent has no clue where he is and just fire at things in side his line of sight and range (which you measure pre-game).

Yeah, but it's kinda cheap if he never gets caught. Maybe you should make a rule like he isn't caught unless there's a scout within X" of the target. (eg if he snipes a dude near a scout, the scout finds him and alerts other troops in response)

the sniper would take a whole turn to aim, if the target moves more than 4inchs then the aim doesn't count, this will really increase the paranoid levels!

didn't J+B originally make it, along with his spongebob, jawjaw and some other terrible one? i thought the non-dimmies refined it
CAKE OR DEATH? That is the question...

This specific card is the one we made. I know J+B had one of the prototype ones we worked with.

It's more like I opened the template and copied stuff in. It was outrageously easy, but requires Photoshop.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.
